Hiking around Lake Gosau: Löckermoos - © Kraft


Pleasant paths, rugged rocks

Tie your boots, pack your rucksack and just start hiking. Through roads and alleys, past lovingly painted houses and friendly people. Out of town,into nature. Stimulating, exciting or calming – all around Lake Hallstatt and the Gosau Valley you can experience and walk the rough beauty of the breathtaking Alpine mountains.

Let your mind wander into the vast Alpine landscape. Across blooming Alpine pastures, rugged mountain ranges, deep blue lakes and crystal clear streams. Wild and real, gentle and calm. A world of contradictions – incomparable enjoyment. Past the Mout Sarstein mountain range all the way to Moun Krippenstein in Obertraun on Lake Hallstatt. Moments you will never forget. The daily grind moves far away and you can clear your head, as clear as the high Alpine mountain air. You might get to know yourself a bit better. You almost wish you will never arrive at your destination. That´s hiking in the UNESCO World Heritage region of Hallstatt Dachstein Salzkammergut. Enjoy it!

Bus instead of train -
rail replacement service in the World Heritage

Dear rail travellers! From 29th September to 10th October 2018, the train connection between the stations "Steeg-Gosau" and "Stainach-Irdning" will be closed due to construction. Affected are also the stations of Hallstatt and Obertraun. A rail replacement service will be provided. Expect delays! The station of Bad Goisern is not affected by the closure! The ferry service between "Hallstatt train station" and "Hallstatt market" (centre) will also be suspended during this time. As an alternative for hikers on the "Ostuferwanderweg" we recommend the quaint salt ship "Navia". Note for all cyclists: The transport of bicycles in buses of the rail replacement service is not possible! Have a good trip!
